My sales here in Central Maine are, like you, up 50% over the same
period last year. I'm not having any record breaking days, however the
sales are consistently good. My shop is busy, and we will be casting,
and fabricating custom work right up to the last minute.
This is my 24th Christmas season in the same location. I'm always
left with the question as to when is the shutoff time for special
order work? I haven't missed a deadline yet, but I'm not as willing
to work late into the night as I was, say 5 years ago. I still say
bring it on, and we will try to get it done, as it's a long cold
winter here in Maine.
Stay strong, be well, and keep the Peace!
